A few minutes further south is Nuevo Vallarta, where you have entertainment, excitement, water park, swimming with dolphins, fantastic excursions and shopping. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is just 10 minutes further south with all it’s historic old world setting and activities. 5 minutes to the north is La Cruz and then luxurious Punta Mita, and a little further are the quaint surfing villages of Sayulita & San Pancho.
This is a BEACHFRONT property on beautiful Banderas Bay with million dollar panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Banderas Bay has over 100 km of coastline and beaches surrounded by the majestic Sierra Madres mountians and “jungle”, This is the birthing place for the HUMPBACK WHALES and the year round home of thousands of Dolphins. Have you ever wondered where the whales all go when they head south for the winter – they are right in Banderas Bay – whale watching tours abound during the months of November through March. We have even seen some Orcas on the whale watching tours.
Start your morning with an invigorating 20 minute beach walk to the Bucerias' beachfront restaurants for breakfast, have a professional massage on the beach for about $25 before walking back or taking a 3 minute taxi ride home.
RECREATION – When you want a break from relaxing and soaking up the sun at Barlovento’s pools and beach, there is much to choose from. Well known Vallarta Adventures has something for everyone – check their website for unforgettable experiences. You can take a boat ride to a remote mountain spot in the bay and ride mules up into the mountains, then zip line over the jungle, repel down a 100 foot waterfall to swim in its cool waters below, then zip line and waterslide your way down the mountain to the boat. There is a also first class water park nearby. For fishing, Banderas Bay has Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna and Mahi Mahi and is home to International Tournaments. Fishing here is fantastic. I caught an 8 foot Sailfish 15 minutes from shore. Horseback riding on the beach or in the mountains or four wheeling adventures are great fun filled days.
WATER SPORTS – Surfing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, kayaking, jet skis, sailing, parasailing are all right there for you.
GOLF courses abound in the area with courses in all ranges from Jack Nicklaus to simple public courses.
DINING You could stay 6 months at our condo eating at great restaurants every day and never go to any of them twice, but you’ll find yourself going back to your favorites where they come to know you. Enjoy fresh fish and shrimp daily right from the bay at the restaurants or cook your own fresh fish, on our grill, from the La CRUZ Seafood Market which is at the water’s edge and only 5 minutes from our condo – watch the fisherman bring in their catch and choose your dinner right there for ridiculously low prices and they will fillet it in front of you..
